This is my *****, Mocha. How do you guys feel about the composition? Bokeh?
Well, she's cut in half by a fence. Could of done without the thread title too, despite the fact that it's a legitimate usage.
I found the picture interesting, as the composition really skews her size! She's on a hill in my yard that goes down about two feet before meeting the fence.
while I agree the title of the thread is a lil mean,,any way the photo is good could have cropped the front some and the fence split the dog, but all in all a good photo
I was expecting some crazy lady running around.....
Thanks for the compliment, and just to be clear, there is nothing at all mean or offensive about the title.
Etymology: Middle English bicche, from Old English bicce
Date: before 12th century
1: the female of the dog or some other carnivorous mammals
While I know that some use this word as a derogatory slight, I'm using it in the professional manner.
I was a lil confused about the title but it ain't nothin but a thang. As far as the composition goes, I'm trying to interpret the overall photo but it's just a pooch behind a fence. Nothing aesthetically pleasing. Just my 2 cents.
Btw, bokeh = out of focus light sources shaped by the lens's aperture. (Circles & Hexagons.)
The photo is "meh" at best IMO. The forward fence cutting her in half is a major distraction. She now has a steel post for a front leg. The tilt isn't a putoff because the vertical elements in the background are only slightly off. (could still use a tilt of .5° ccw). It would please me more if her front end was turned more towards the camera which would result in missing the brown eye.
The bokeh is working in the distance.
Confused about the title? That's strange. It's perfectly clear once you see the picture.
Maybe bokeh wasn't the proper word.. I was using it like this:
Bokeh (derived from Japanese, a noun boke 暈け, meaning "blur" or "haze")
Anyway, thanks for the comments.
Thanks for the critique, Kundalini. Good points..
That is what "bokeh" means in Japanese. That is not necessarily what it means in photographic terms.
You can see instances of bokeh on the chain link fence where it is reflective, since "bokeh" is the occurrence of light in an unfocused area.
The best part is, she has the cool 'dog ear' going on... :thumbup: :mrgreen:
